It combines three important areas of culture and includes the following programs: "School in the Museum", "School in the Theater" and "Film School". The program "School in the Museum" involves the use of the collections of the Georgian National Museum as a teaching resource. Museum exhibits are specially selected for the development and implementation of educational programs and they are carried out at three museums: the Simon Janashia Museum of Georgia, Dimitri Shevardnadze National Gallery and Giorgi Chitaia Ethnographic Museum in the open air.
